The auto will attempt the break the land speed record in South Africa in 2019. Driven by Royal Air Force Wing commander Andy Green, Bloodhound SSC made two trips down Newquay's 1.7-mile (2.7-km) runway.
Fitted with a Typhoon aircraft engine, Bloodhound SSC has been described as a mix between a fighter jet, a Formula One auto and a spaceship.

Wing Commander Green is no stranger to speed, in fact it was 20 years ago that Green took to the wheel of the Thrust SSC vehicle and then proceeded to take it through the sound barrier all the way to a staggering 763mph.
Along a runway at the Newquay Airport in southwest England earlier today, the Bloodhound Supersonic Car zoomed past its hopeful goal of 322 km/h (200 mph). This was also Green's first opportunity to log some miles in the speed machine.
How Manchester United Are Expected To Line Up For Crucial Tottenham Clash
The two sides, who are separated in their table only by goal difference, face each other at Old Trafford on Saturday. You can read in my book how he is, for me, one of the best managers in the world - admired like [Pep] Guardiola.
After weeks of trials, the auto was put through its paces at Newquay Airport in Cornwall. "The auto is designed for high speed on a desert rather than sprint performance off the line, but it still accelerated from zero to 210mph in less than eight seconds".
He is in the United Kingdom to test the Bloodhound for the first time. "And then to slow down, I need to apply gentle pressure to the brakes for 2 seconds to "warm up" the carbon fibre disk brakes before applying full force on the brakes to stop the auto".
